Snider football, Concordia & Blackhawk Christian volleyball moving up

INDIANAPOLIS - Several Northeast Indiana high school athletic teams will be moving classes for the next 2 school years.

The Indiana High School Athletic Association published on Wednesday new classifications for football, boys and girls basketball and boys and girls soccer. The classifications, which will be applied to the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years, are based on enrollment and the IHSAA championship success factor, a championship-based point system used to help even out competition.

Among some of the big moves:

  • Snider football will bump up from Class 5A to Class 6A. The Panthers have won 3 straight regional titles and were state champions in 2015. The move is based on the tournament success factor.

 

  • Concordia Lutheran’s volleyball team will move up from Class 3A to Class 4A following the Cadets' recent championship success. Concordia has won 2 of the last 3 regionals.

 

  • Blackhawk Christian volleyball also will move from Class 1A to Class 2A based on postseason success. The Lady Braves won the 1A state title this past season, and has won 3 straight regional championships.

 

  • Boys and girls soccer will add a third classification starting next fall. The largest 99 schools in Indiana plus two other schools electing to play in the class will make up Class 3A.
